Destiny has 25 million players clocking in more than three hours per day on average

Constantly thinking about your Guardian and wondering what Xur will have lined up for you this weekend? Or maybe even pondering the best way to finish your next Gunsmith quest, or hoping that Three Of Coins will finally deliver the goods. Don't worry, it's the same for 25 million others.

Three. That only leaves 21 hours for those other human being duties. If you'd like to know more about how it's hooked you, here's how Bungie worked hard to trap you in Destiny (opens in new tab) and that was before The Taken King was released.
